Sampson-PCI.JPGDavid Sampson has been on the job about two months as the new president and CEO of the Property Casualty Insurers Association of America, but hell truly take center stage this week in Boston while presiding over PCIs annual meeting. This Sampson may be tempted to flex his muscles to steer policy or strategy–which in the insurance industry can be as frustrating as herding cats–but he knows his job requires more diplomatic skills to achieve consensus.

Mr. Sampson’s predecessor–Ernie Csiszar, a former insurance company executive who left his post mid-term as president of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners for the PCI gig–abruptly announced his resignation not far into his new job shortly after PCI reversed course and pulled out of ProtectingAmerica.org, the Allstate-backed group pushing for a federal mega-catastrophe fund, which PCI joined with much fanfare days before defecting. (See my blogs entries on Sept. 15 and Sept. 18 for more background.)
